Sam Trammell, who plays Sam Merlotte on the HBO vampire drama True Blood, says bullies are scared in It Gets Better PSA.

The 40-year-old Trammell is the latest True Blood co-star to reach out to troubled LGBT teens.

“Right now there are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered or questioning youths contemplating suicide, and you might be one of them. And if you are, I have a very important message for you: It gets better,” Trammell says in his one-minute-twenty-seven-second video.

“The people bullying you are doing so just because they feel insecure,” Trammell adds. “They're scared and they're lashing out, and they do not represent the real world outside of school.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Anna Paquin, who plays Sookie Stackhouse, Alexander Skarsgard, who plays vampire Eric Northman, Rutina Wesley, who plays lesbian cage-fighter Tara Thornton, and Kristen Bauer, who plays vampire Pam Ravenscroft, have also recorded videos for gay activist Dan Savage's It Gets Better Project, which urges teens being bullied because they are or are perceived to be gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender to hang in there, because life gets better.

Last week, Nelsan Ellis, who plays flamboyant gay prostitute and vampire blood dealer Lafayette Reynolds, also joined the campaign.
